Call it my love for the sleek and simple things in life, but I just can’t seem to connect with this Muzungu Sisters “statement tote” (that’s an understatement, NET-A-PORTER).
“Pale pink for fall?” you say? “Buy pastel now?” you wonder, aghast? I know, I know. It seems a little backwards – but that’s precisely what I like about the prospect of purchasing this newly released 3.1 Phillip Lim bag right now.
Who needs monogrammed logos and trademark signage when a singular detail is as universally and instantaneously recognized as Tom Ford’s? Indeed, the man needs no introduction, and that includes his bags.
How much do I love Jil Sander? My love for the ultimate minimalist brand is seemingly exponential, as whenever I think they can’t get much better, they go and take the basic hobo and reinvent it. The change isn’t just in the coy “string sack” name. It’s crazy that all it takes is two little details to change virtually everything about a standard style.
